About this destilado de agave

El Destilado Pichomel is made with maguey Pichomel (Agave Marmorata) in the state of Puebla, Mexico. The agave is a closely related sub-varietal of maguey Tepextate. This mezcal is made by Atelo Ramirez. The agave are cooked with evergreen, mashed by hand with wooden mallets, fermented in plastic with spring water, and distilled in a copper-clay-steel hybrid still.

El Destilado

While some of the El Destilado brand's agave distillates are sourced from some of the same producers as the 5 Sentidos brand, the El Destilado spirits brand is otherwise not directly related to the El Destilado restaurant in Oaxaca City. The brand was founded by Michael Sager and Marcis Dzelzainis, who own the Sager + Wilde Restaurant and Wine Bar in London.

Super unique. Buttered popcorn, toffee, bubblegum. A distinct, sweet, and delectable mezcal that I’m eager to share with friends. One of my favorites from about a dozen I tried from 5 Sentidos/El Destilado at their restaurant in Oaxaca City.

Batch MX-19-PICH.

My husband hates this by the way, so where I’m finding joy in the novelty, the funkiness of this might be polarizing in the end.

UPDATE: the butterscotch funkiness has progressed to a ‘used gym socks’ putrid flavor. I can taste the fermenting agave, and it’s still… novel… but I would say it’s tipped over into undrinkable territory about 6 months open and halfway full.
